Nuclear Blast is proud to announce that ex-KVELERTAK frontman, Erlend Hjelvik, has started a solo metal band HJELVIK and has signed with Nuclear Blast Records! HJELVIK also reveals he will release his debut album Welcome to Hel later this year.
Former frontman and co-founder of KVELERTAK, Erlend Hjelvik, comments:
"Signing with Nuclear Blast is a dream come true for me. Since I was a teenager, I've been a fan of classic NB bands like, Immortal, Dimmu Borgir, In Flames and so on --- so, that makes me feel extra proud to call Nuclear Blast my new label home. I'm certain Nuclear Blast will do an awesome job bringing HJELVIK metal to the masses on my new album, Welcome to Hel, and many more to come."
Erlend Hjelvik describes his music as 'blackened Viking Heavy Metal' with lyrics based on Norse mythology and history. There is more to come soon, so stay tuned!
